Just a quick one handed typing post (other hand holding sleeping baby ;-) to say everything's okay. Well, as okay as it can be when you've had a really tough row to hoe as a wee little lambie. A vitamin/mineral deficiency has caused problems with some of Maisie's wool falling off, her legs going wonky, probably the troubles with digestion and even the poor sleeping could be tied in. She's eating really well though, has gained two pounds and is feeling much better. She's just got more catching up to do than a normal lamb.
We made a visit to the vet clinic this morning and they decided her ankle joints were compromised to where they needed splinting to try to correct her growth. They also gave her some booster shots and in general were not exceptionally popular with Miss Maisie ;-). Until they brought out a new fleece jacket. With a hood that covers up her bare little neck and a velcro fleece belly band for even more warmth. Too stinkin' cute.
